When we’re not watching foreign films or documentaries, we’re probably watching the Dodgers. But the rest of the time? The rest of the time we’re playing video games! Join us in celebrating one of the world’s most under appreciated art forms with four of our favorite gaming-inspired films every Throwback Thursday in November at the NoHo 7 in North Hollywood.
Our “My Life as a Video Game” Throwback Thursday series begins on Thursday, November 1st with THE LAST STARFIGHTER! Doors open at 7pm, trivia starts at 7:30, and movies begin at 7:40pm. Check out the full schedule below!

November 8: WarGames
A young video game aficionado, David (Matthew Broderick), inadvertently taps into a top secret U.S. military computer and proceeds to play his favorite game, “Global Thermonuclear War.” What we know, but David doesn’t, is that the Pentagon, hoping to eliminate the chancy “human element” in the event of an actual war, has given its computer total, irreversible control over the launching of nuclear weaponry. David and government official McKittrick (Dabney Coleman) race against time to reverse the computer’s resolve to send bombers to Russia. TICKETS.
